Dr. David Samadi, prostate cancer expert, highlights the benefits of robotic prostate surgery over radiation for prostate cancer.
Did you know that there's a 65% lower risk of metastasis with prostate cancer surgery than prostate cancer radiation treatment?
A study from Memorial Sloan Kettering showed a 65 percent reduced risk of prostate cancer metastasis after surgery compared to radiation.
Long-term side effects of prostate cancer radiation include rectal bleeding, bladder bleeding, and a 5 percent increased risk of rectal cancer and bladder cancer. With robotic prostate surgery, side effects and risks are reduced over time, not increased.
